UK Medicines Onformation (UKMI) has launched a Medicines Compliance Aid Database for healthcare professionals. The database makes recommendations on the suitability of solid dose forms for transfer from the manufacturers’ original packaging to multi-compartment compliance aids (MCAs).
These recommendations are based on:
• physico-chemical stability and characteristics of the medicine and its formulation(s).
• advice, where available, from manufacturers
• data, where available, on storage in MCAs
UKmI recommend using the database alongside the guidance from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society Improving patient outcomes through the better use of multi-compartment compliance aids (MCA)
